The substation at the end of Greenmoor road, Old Smithfield, Egremont has had a make over.
It is part of a new initiative by ElectricNorthwest to beautify existing substation in areas that have had funding shortfall and little new investment.
The work began two months ago when the area around the substation was cleared, dug and had wild flowers planted and has now as the flowers grow we can see the work was worth it.
Borough and town councillor Sam Pollen has been working with ElectricNorthwest to bring the area investment and to improve areas that have been looking a bit drab or overgrown. The company has put enough money aside to maintain what has already been done and to plant a new crop of wild flowers each year. The company has plans to do similar works with other substations around Copeland.
Today saw the Cumbria in Bloom judges arrive in Egremont.
Egremont town council has entered the annual awards for the last 4yrs. Previously the town has won a bronze award and last year the town received the Silver gilt award- a fantastic achievement.
Judges Alison Saxby & Jean Airey have many year experience in horticulture and both served the judging panel for many years. They were shown round the town by Chair person Neil Ferguson, Vice Chair Sam Pollen, Town Clerk Geraldine Pritchard and the Cemetery Curator Nelson Shepard.
Once again the Egremont bowling green committee also took part and wowed the judges with their efforts once more- last year they deservedly received two awards.
The judging also took place at the Egremont youth partnership who also won awards last year – the group met the three teenagers who had helped the town council to rid the town of weeds along with the continuing support of Calderwood house who continue to work wonders in the towns community and once again without who’s help the town would not look as good.
Nelson Shepard who worked himself almost to death to ensure everything looked so good-they have been aided by Martin from the Lengthsmen team and the rest of the town council employees – Nicola and Lee.
On Thursday Egremont town councillors competed against the best of Egremont bowling team. Cllr Steven Bell, Chair person Neil Ferguson, Cllr Graham Calvin, Cllr Tom Higgins, Cllr Mike McVeigh, Cllr Sam Pollen and former councillor Jacqui Smith took part against Egremonts’ finest. It was a lovely summers evening with temperatures soaring the bowling club chair picked the teams and began proceedings.
The competition was fierce, there were missed shots and missed chances. The beautiful surroundings inspired the best from everyone but by the end there were no overall winners. Everyone had a lot of fun and enjoyed refreshments at the end.
Anyone interested in joining the club or having a came of bowls membership is £35 a year or just £3 a day. Bowls are available from the club to use, casual attire is welcome.
The club is open from 2pm until 8pm. All ages and abilities are welcome.
